Occupation on 1851 census
« on: Monday 14 September 20 14:07 BST (UK) »
Can Chatters help with the attached occupation in the 1851 census? It's for Henry Glanville age 23 years residing in Buckland Monachorum (with brother William). It looks like 'w...ter' but no idea other than that. Many thanks!

I think it is' Visitor'. There are a couple more on page 12, with 'Visitor' in the Occupation column.

I also think it is Visitor comparing it to other entries by the same enumerator

Thank you, everyone. 'Visitor' makes sense but how maddening not to have an occupation to vaildate him in later censuses.
